Statement from the Jersey Chief of Police

I can confirm that as at 10:30am today, Wednesday 14th December, one further fatality has been confirmed at the Haut du Mont site on Pier Road.

The number of Islanders confirmed to have died in the blast is now eight. We estimate that there is still one resident that is unaccounted for.

As has been our process throughout, the families have been made aware of this announcement before the public and media and are being supported by our specially trained Family Liaison Officers.

The fatalities have not yet been formally identified. The Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) process must be carefully considered and managed in a dignified and compassionate way.

I am sure Islanders will continue to join me in giving our thoughts to those victims, their families, and friends, in what has been a tragic incident for our Island and our community. 

May I ask that the privacy of the families continues to be respected.
